Patrick Dempsey May Leave ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Deadline reports that Patrick Dempsey’s contract is up at the end of next season, and he is seriously considering leaving the show.  Like Katherine Heigl, his film career has taken off since the show began, and he reportedly wants to focus on some leading man roles that he has in the pipeline.  As an aside, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ sounds like a pretty miserable place to work.  Though the actors insist that they are like “family,” something tells me that’s a lie.  First you had the Isaiah Washington scandal, then T.R. Knight begged to get out of his contract, and finally, there was that endless drama with Katherine Heigl.  Now – Patrick Dempsey wants to leave!?  What are they not telling us?
